Important: If SAIF based report_power has already been run in this session, run the reset_switching_activity -all command in the Tcl console. This clears the SAIF data in the power engine from the earlier runs.
  1. Close any open Report Power views.
  2. In the Flow Navigator, select Implemented Design > Report Power to open the Report Power dialog box.

    Alternatively, select Reports > Report Power in the main menu.

  3. In the Report Power dialog box, make the following settings:
    • Specify the Results name as power_1.
    • In the Environment tab, set the Process to maximum.
    • In the Switching tab, leave the Simulation activity file empty.
  4. Verify that all the input settings are correct and click OK.

    The Report Power command creates a power report under the power_1 tab in the results windows area. Note that the total power for vectorless analysis runs with default switching rates.
